Re: Comcast may have no choice

And we are now planning to cut the cord on Cable with Xfinity and only get their high speed internet, thus saving over $100/month and watching all of our content through our AppleTV, which is how we consume over 80% of our content now.

Re: Age of Masses-Industrial Economy is Over

If you did't have to have a job to make money to buy "stuff", what would you do? Whatever you wanted. Most people eventually find something that interests them--and then they *want* to do that. So they do it. Why? Because it *interests* [more]

Re: AAPL, Daimler conflict with West for Russia
